After exams or on holidays, many students go on trips with their friends and family. However, due to COVID-19, it has become difficult to do outdoor activities due to restrictions such as maintaining social distance and prohibition of gatherings with more than five people. Glamping is a good way to still enjoy outdoor activities while still adhering to COVID-19 restrictions. Gyeongsangnam-do has a variety of glamping sites. This article will introduce three glamping sites located in Hapcheon, Cheongdo, and Gyeongju.
The first site is called 'Wind Trace Glamping' and is located in Hapcheon. Sitting at the foot of Mt. Hapcheon, full of royal azaleas, Wind Trace Glamping is a place where people can enjoy a panoramic view of Mosanjae with eight views of Hapcheon. Glamping and Caravan style camping are available to campers. The Glamping site also offers Suite and Cabin camping. Suite camping provides an indoor glamping tent decorated with Scandinavian bedding. Ondol, two beds, air conditioning, shower, toilets, sinks, refrigerators, microwave ovens, tables, chairs, cooking utensils, mirrors, and other facilities are also provided. The camping suite can accommodate two to six people. The cabins are recommended for families of four with children. They can accommodate two to four people, and there are 17 new cabin tents available. A bed, an air conditioner, a bathroom with a shower and toilet, a sink, a refrigerator, a microwave oven, a rice cooker, a hairdryer and a mirror are provided. The advantage of the wind trace glamping is that old tents removed and only new tents replaced for the renewal of the campsite. After arriving at the glamping site, people have to check their body temperature to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition, everyone must wear a mask when using places where multiple people can enter and leave, such as a caretaker's office or a shop.
The next camping site is ‘Bongsiki Playground’ located in Cheongdo. There are three types of tents available at Bongsiki Playground: general tents, large tents, and couple tents. General tents can accommodate up to four people from two people. Refrigerators, microwave ovens, pots, frying pans, cutting boards, knives, tongs, scissors, burners, Wi-Fi and TVs are provided. Large tents and couple tents can accommodate four to eight people, and include refrigerators, microwave ovens, frying pans, cutting boards, knives, tongs, scissors, and burners. The large tent is connected to two large igloo tents and has a large barbecue area. Couples tents, on the other hand, have two independent igloo tents and share one barbecue area. In addition to the glamping area, there is a barbecue area, a large outdoor swimming pool which reaches a depth of about 1m, a children's trampoline, a snack bar, a communal toilet, and a shower room. Check-in is from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and check-out must be completed by 11 a.m. Dogs are not allowed at Bongsiki Playground. Campers who arrive at Punggak Terminal between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. can use a pick-up service. Barbecue sets cost 40,000 won for two people. Bongsiki Playground also offers ramen, instant rice, some vegetables and sauce at the glamping site. Campers should make a reservation to buy a barbecue set.
In Gyeongju, there is a glamping site called ‘Sky Glamping’. There are eighteen cabana tents divided into two groups of nine tents. Each cabana tent meets fire regulation standards. One room in a cabana is 10 square meters. Two queen-sized wooden beds, bedding sets, small refrigerators, tables, chairs, dressers, mirrors, cookware, BBQ tables and BBQ grills are provided. Cabanas are equipped with an electric carpet and heater in winter and air conditioning in summer. Charcoal is not allowed outside, and pets are not allowed in the cabana. A barbecue set is also available here, providing meat, prawns, ramen and instant rice, handmade sausages, vegetables, and side dishes for two people. Gyeongju Sky Glamping is famous for its historical sites. The Silla Millennium Park, Bulguksa Temple, Seokguram, Cheomseongdae, Gyeongju National Museum of Korea, the tomb of King Munmudae, the Bomun Tourist Complex, Gyeongju World, and World Cultural Expo Park are all nearby. If campers are feeling sad about the end of their glamping trip, they can always visit historical tourist spots.
Gyeongsangnam-do has various places where people can enjoy glamping, and each has its own unique facilities, advantages, and disadvantages. If people carefully consider the number of people, the area, and the facilities provided at each glamping location then they will be sure to enjoy their glamping trip. Detailed information on glamping sites can be found on the sites of 'Wind Trace Glamping & Caravan, Bongsiki Playground, and Gyeongju Sky Glamping'. Glamping is an outdoor activity that has relatively little contact with others, but campers still need to be careful to follow the COVID-19 safety rules. In addition, it is important to enjoy glamping while paying attention to various accidents. Glamping locations usually provide basic supplies to help campers enjoy glamping. And a large advantage is that campers can travel lightly when glamping compared to camping. If you want to break out of your daily routine, go glamping with your family and friends.
